about collaborate universe

collaborate universe offers training workshops and e-learning modules, which aim to improve the business relationship skills of individuals.

collaborate is a comprehensive, integrated and flexible development program, comprising workshops, e-learning, coaching and other tools.

The collaborate program is based on ideas and tools in Smarter Selling, which was developed by Keith Dugdale and David Lambert (Financial Times, 2007 and 2011), and has become an internationally acclaimed book on developing business relationships.  Since then the approach has been used to deliver sales training to executives, professionals and sales teams around the world in advanced business relationship and sales skills.
